Carroll William Pieper
Carroll William Pieper passed away June 9, 2017 at the age of 89 at Gardenside Crossing at North Central Health Care in Wausau.
Carroll was born to the late Walter and Ann (Rosentreter) Pieper on December 11, 1927 in Brokaw, the oldest of four siblings. He imersed himself completely in everything that he did growing up including his studies, working in the family garden, and hunting and fishing in the surrounding wilderness.
He graduated from Wausau High School in 1945. Shortly after he began his career working at Marathon Electric, he joined the United States Army where he proudly served as an Intercept Operator. He was honorably discharged in 1947. He spent the majority of his career at Mosinee Paper Corporation working up the ranks to retire as Chief Engineer. He was particularly proud of this accomplishment having never attended college.
He married the love of his life, Duaine May Buntrock on May 21, 1949 in Wausau. Together they celebrated 68 years of marriage.
Carroll often lamented that he had too many interests, thrusting himself completely into all that he did. He had a wide variety of skills and hobbies, and was self-taught. He took pride in his ability to learn through his boundless reading. Over the years he amassed a collection of books covering fishing, hunting, art, sailing, poetry, and virtually all of the trades. He loved to sail on Lake Dubay, and even built the family cottage from the ground up in Northern Wisconsin. He loved to sail on Lake Dubay, and even built the family cottage from the ground up in Northern Wisconsin. Despite his love for hunting, fishing and other hobbies, family and friends always came first.
While he loved his job, he truly relished his retirement which allowed him even more time to devote to his joys. Although his accomplishments are too vast to list, he was very generous with his time and talents helping his children with projects around their homes. He gladly welcomed his Daughter-in-Law, Kathie and his Son-in-Law Jim into his family.
His Grandchildren, Conner and Allison were a source of endless joy and pride for him. He spent countless hours reading to them as youngsters, “Hattie and the Fox” being one of their favorites.
He was an avid painter, leaving behind many beautiful paintings -especially of birds.
He is survived by his wife, Duaine, Schofield; daughter, Jane (Jim) Garrett, Rochester, MN; sons, Scott (Kathie) Pieper, Merrill; and Mark Pieper, Wausau; two grandchildren, Conner and Allison Garrett; and one sister, Verene Kelly, Ocala, FL. He was preceded in death by his parents; his brother, Dave Pieper; sister, Jan Bergmann; and brother-in-law, Tom Buntrock.
